op and at a rally, with condoleezza rice. you know, there are a lot of former george w. bush administration officials advising the romney campaign. but even they, you would think, would be sort of cognizant of how people view that administration, right? you think they would recognize that there is a little political peril in trying to underscore to a country that is really paying attention right now that everybody should expect a lot of continuity between the george w. bush years and a romney presidency. if you like the george w. bush years and you miss all those folks, like condoleezza rice, don't worry, if you elect romney, you'll see more of them again. this came up last night in what i thought was a brilliant question from one of the audience members at that debate at hofstra, and it got right at the central problem that the republicans have been dealing, since the support for romney creatored during the george w. bush second term. the greatest show on earth has been the republican party figuring out who it is after bush and cheney. the republican party figuring out if th

that was george w. bush, who had held about half that amount. he broke the clinton's record and so on. so it's important to know it's a story. it's meant to bomb its critic is quick to jump on him for devoting so much time to fundraising. and he absolutely has broken records. but there's a very understandable reason why. and what we've seen in presidential fundraising is an unintentional consequence of the rules of our political system, that we have campaign finance rules designed to reduce corruption or the appearance of corruption. and to do limit the amounts of money that presidents are candidates can raise from any individual or any group. the idea is you cannot buy an election if the comic of $2500 to a presidential candidate per election cycle. when you combine those relatively low campaignÑ contribution limit for the rapidly escalating cost of campaign, presidents are virtually forced to spend more and more time raising money and it has been an escalation. 20 years ago with stories about how the first president bush won a record-breaking fundraiser. thing about george w. bush and no

, president george w. bush, the time he spent in ohio, florida, pennsylvania, and you can certainly find examples of presidents attending to the electoral concerns, but i said what we see if we look at it systematically, if we looked at it over decades, with the presidents do, what patterns would play out and is there a disproportionate focus on the electoral matters to the estimates and what did you fight? >> the short answer is that we have seen a substantial increase in the time that presidents devote to electoral concerns. and the clear indicator is fund-raising. if a president goes to ohio to years before the election is either because it is one of the largest states because he cares about the good people of ohio or because it is likely to edge in the presidential election? that is a bit harder to say, but what is unambiguously electoral is the presidential fund-raising. and that we have seen escalate over the past three and a half decades. we've also seen a rise in strategic travel and disproportionate focus on battleground states and the key nominating states. not just in the elec

about this in your book "drift," under reagan, we saw it under george w. bush. government grew as a share of gdp, spending, even things like medicare part d. the question is, who will government benefit? that is question at issue in the campaign. do not let yourself -- the reason that hypocrisy is so important, do not let yourself get suckered into the belief this is a battle over how big government is going to be. i don't think that's actually what's on the table. what's on the table is are the poor going to see their medicaid cut and the pentagon get $2 trillion or is the balance in the other direction? that is what is on the table. >> it's not just a false debate about the size of government. it's a false debate about whether or not government works. the thing that i thought was important last night about biden and the reason that we cut that sound bite as long as we did there, so you can hear what biden says, is that he doesn't just say, ah, you're a hypocrite, you wanted this money. he say, you wanted this money because as you argued to me, this spending works. it would wo

hurricane katrina under george w. bush, it was an absolute disaster because the guys don't believe in government. so when you put them in charge of government, they do a horrible job. that shouldn't be surprising. now, romney and ryan say oh, no, it's okay. even if we're going to cut it by 40%, a romney-ryan administration will always ensure that disaster funding is there for those in need. period. now, isn't that great? that's just basically the same old romney-ryan lie. i'm going to cut it by 40% but it will be exactly the same. no it won't! you'll cut it by 40%. it will be a disaster, literally! and then we turn to noaa's analysis in 2011 of what the cuts would do. they say without data from the satellite closest to the end of its shelf life, the accuracy of its forecasts for major storms like blizzards and hurricanes would be decreased by approximately 50%. and that's not just hey i can't tell what the weather's going to be like or i can't exactly tell where the storm's going to hit. it has ramifications.

. it was the theory that president george w. bush, remember this, had a listening device implanted in his suit while he was debating john kerry. the problem with that george w. bush conspiracy theory of course was always that john kerry absolutely destroyed george w. bush in that debate when bush was supposedly wearing a listening device. so if he was wearing a listening device whoever was supposedly whispering in the president's ear was not whispering things that helped him. that's always the part i didn't understand. but the 2012 version of that theory now is that mitt romney cheated in the debate against president obama this week not by having somebody feed him the answers through an ear piece but rather by bringing the illegal crib sheet on to the debate stage with him. you see, previous debate rules have set out very clearly that, quote, no props, notes, charts, diagrams, or other writings or other tangible things may be brought into the debate by any candidate and yet have a look at this damning evidence. this is at the very beginning of the debate on wednesday night and as you'll be able to s
